5tAif e Cnó, Glaise Cró, i.e., Stream of Gore, 31, 32 ; in 
the Táin Bó Cualnge, p. 337, this stream is mentioned 
as follows, showing that Cuillend Cind Duni was a 
place beside it : " Conid Cuillend, cind dúni comainm 
béus ind inaid i mbatar 6 sin. Ocus conid Ath 
Cró ainm ind átha forsinbatar, 'so that Cuillend 
Cind Dúni is since that still the^ name of the place 
in which they were, and also Ath Cró is the name 
of the ford at which they were.' A variant has: 
" Cuillenn cinn dúine ainm na tulcha imboi Medb 
1 Oilell in oidhchi sin -] Ath Cet chúille ainm in 



ii3 

át ha -} Glais Cr<5 ainm na glaisi." That is, the 
place = Cullend cind dúni. the ford = Atli Cr<5 or 
Ath Ceit Cúli (var.) and the stream = Glais Cr<5. 
Our place, however, would seem to have been 
somewhere between Tara and the north-west of 
Co. Kilkenny, and therefore cannot have been the 
same as that in the Tain. The Táin topography has 
been used and applied in a different way ! 

5lAif e Cfttnnn, afterwards glAife Cfió, 31. óee gÍAipe 
Cftó. [Glaiss Crund or Glaiss Cruina is mentioned in 
Táin Bó < úalgne, pp. 194 and 195, but the place 
cannot be the same as ours, as (1) it is not identical 
with Glaiss Cró, (2) it was in Cúainge, and was not 
very far from Bernais Tána B6 Cualnge, which is 
probably the present Barnavave = beAfiriA tflei-o- 
be, in Cuailnge — the Glaiss Cruind of the Tain 
was then probably the Piedmont River, which 
rises beside Barnavave. ] 

5teArm frolcAin, Gleann Bholchain, perhaps corrupted 
from Gualu Mulchi in Tain Bo Cualnge, p. 179, where 
it is mentioned as being between Ath Lethain (for 
Nith i crich Conailli Murthemne = * on the Dee in 
the plain of Co. Louth') and Ath Carpait on the 
same river. Gúalu Mulchi, then, was somewhere on 
the Dee River, perhaps between Stabannan and 
Ardee. A variant orthography of the Táin (note 3) 
has Ath Guala Mulcha, showing the later form of 
Mulchi broad, as Bolchain is. A scribal misreading 
of a MS. contraction $t. may have caused the sub- 
stitution of 5 lectin for 5-uAÍA.

ii4 

Such a position alone accords with Cuchulainn's 
journey, first to the plain of Emania, and afterwards 
through the Fuad Mts., to the Plain of Louth. 
The placing of Inbhear M<5r by the text in Cuailnge 
(1 scfiic CuA-iLn^e) is probably due to confusion of 
the topography, which also may exist in the case of 
5"LAif e Cfitnnn and ^lAire C-pó, whose position can- 
not agree with those indicated by the Táin. Per- 
haps CtiAitn^e is used in a wider sense = uIait),

have been the most northerly point.

ITIA3 An S^Ait, Magh an Sgáil (the plain of the spectre) ; 
gen., 39 ; the mention of this place in Tain B6 
Gúalnge: " Medb Muige in Scáil " appears to show 
that it was in Connacht. Cuchulainn receives the 
attributes of Meadhbh, as her supposed conqueror. 

ITIA5 mexvrm, the Plain of Meann or Muir Meann (the 
Irish Sea, = Muirtheimhne, so called perhaps because 
according to tradition the sea once;? covered that 
district (Muirtheimhne is said to = a recovery from 
the sea, intake), or else because the Irish Sea washes 
its shores ; gen., 21. 

ITIA3 iritnnxeirhne, Magh Muirtheimhne, the plain of 
Louth, between the Carlingford Mountains and the 
Boyne, 3, 6; dat., 5. 

ITIA3 UmtieA-o, Magh Tuireadh, a place near Cong, 
in Co. Mayo ; gen. 6.

Sí*ó Cfió CAoirrie, between Tara and Glaise Cr<5 (Glaise 
Cruinn) ; Conall arrives there after beheading 
Cuileann of Brega ; the place should, therefore, pro- 
bably be looked for in the south of Meath or Co. 
Kildare, &c. ; 29. 

S-fiuú tflÁine, Maine's Stream, formerly glAife bfieA^ ; 
perhaps the present Devlin's River, which rises in 
Slieve Bregh, and flows into the Mattock, a 
tributary of the Boyne ; there is a possibility of the 
names StiAb bjieAJ and gÍAife bjieAJ being con- 
nected together. The boundaries of Brega and 
Oriel are evidently marked in the topography of 
this district, for we also find, not far off, Mt. 
Oriel = SLiAb 01 -[151 All, on the Co. Louth side of 
the border.
